I have a wheeze when exhaling that won't go with inhalers. Peak flow is still normal, is this worrying? It's only a slight wheeze at the end of breath

Yesterday i started 40 mg prednisone avelox 400mg and albuterol breathing treatments. I'm still wheezing when i push out an exhale. Is this normal?

Yesterday i started 40 mg prednisone avelox 400mg and albuterol breathing treatments.  I'm still wheezing when i push out an exhale. Is this normal?

Maybe: A bacterial process can take 2-3 days to show improvement w/antibiotics. If you are still wheezing, you may need the albuterol more frequently. If you are not comfortable at rest, you may need to go to er. Otherwise, vaporizer/humidifier may help + usual cold medicines for symptom relief. ...Read more
